Even though I’m still wandering and “soul-searching” after my dharma (or true “purpose in life”), I’ve always had this deep passion for traveling. And boy, how traveling has taught me more than any textbook could ever teach me! I’m not going to discourage anyone from formal education. I strongly believe proper education is one of the basic fundamentals of life, but I do also recognize how extensive traveling has become one of my best sources of education, about myself and about life, in general.
Traveling is more than just the seeing of sights and tourist attractions, it’s a change that goes on, deep and permanent in your ideas of living. Because at some point you’ll realize how life is all about choices, but is also about coincidences, fate and being at the right place at the right time. And even though you might have the most detailed plan of where you’ll be in five or ten years, I can guarantee you that you’ll for sure NOT be there. And if you actually are, then you’re probably not really living. Because life isn’t about strict paths or planned tactics; it’s about following your gut and taking opportunities along the way that might scare the living shit out of you.
With this video and through my message, I hope to inspire the people who feel “stuck in life” to take a leap of faith outside their comfort zone. Because remember this: life is, and will always be, uncertain. Despite that, though, we can’t let our fear of what might happen stop us from living the life we choose.
So if you love traveling and exploring the unknown as much as I do, then travel! Find a way; no excuses – just go! It’s a lot easier to travel on 20-30, or even 30-40-year-old legs than on 75+ year-old legs ;)
